The Lookout Foundation:
Changing Lives for the Better

Making a difference in the communities where we live and work

The Lookout Foundation invests in communities outside our own doors where we can see the results. Its mission is to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education for women, girls, black and other underserved groups, and security and privacy rights for all.

The Lookout Foundation is a public charity and a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It is entirely run by Lookout employees on a voluntary basis. An employee-led advisory board decides where and how Foundation money is distributed, and organizes activities to donate time and product to local organizations.

The Lookout Pledge

Philanthropy as a core value.

Lookout pledges 1%

In order to provide employees with opportunities to see their contributions make a real impact, Lookout has joined the Pledge 1% movement. It is a commitment to donate 1% company stock to fund the Lookout Foundation’s activities, 1% of our employees' time to local volunteer projects, and 1% of our product to impactful non profit organizations. By making the local community a key stakeholder in our business, success means more than profits. It means helping our friends and neighbors.

Employees working together to make a difference

The Lookout Foundation is entirely run by employees on a voluntary basis.

Random Hacks of Kindness

Through our Random Hacks of Kindness volunteer program, the Foundation formalizes opportunities for teams to donate their time in local communities. In addition, individuals are encouraged to take up to three days per year time away from work to volunteer with organizations that support their personal passions

Non-Profit Grants

The Lookout Foundation provides opportunities for employees to decide where and how donated funds are distributed. The Foundation advisory board is responsible for identifying non-profits that support the Foundation mission, collecting and reviewing grant applications, and determining and distributing grants. In addition, the Foundation gives employee matching grants up to $1000 per employee per year to verified nonprofit organizations of our employees’ choice.

Global Disaster Relief

It was also important to employees involved in the Lookout Foundation to be able to respond and support quickly to local and global emergencies. The Foundation board coordinates volunteers’ time, launches employee matching fundraising campaigns,  and distributes emergency relief funds to provide immediate assistance and supplies to affected communities.  Together with our employees,  the Foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to COVID-19, refugee and natural disaster relief efforts globally.

"Lookout is the opposite of every other security company. We build security products that work, and that our customers trust. When they buy from us they know they're getting something awesome"
